... Ferragamo confesses to have read "books on astronomy, agriculture, science, chemistry, but never books on shoes and shoemaking. Sometimes I will pick up a copy of Vogue or Harper's Bazaar and glance at the dresses because I'm interested in the general trend of fashion; but when I come to a section of shoes I flick over without bothering to read."
